  • The U.S. Code Name for Bin Laden Was Actually 'Cakebread'

    Though the Navy SEAL team storming into bin Laden's Pakistan compound referred to the Al Qaeda leader as "Geronimo," Pentagon and CIA analysts knew him by a more culinary nickname: "Cakebread." The quirky piece of bin Laden death trivia comes from excerpts from a new book published by ABC News called Target: Bin Laden—The Death and Life of Public Enemy Number One. This morning, the network sent us a preview of the book with a conveniently bulleted list of its latest scoops:
  • Sikh man in US punched by man who called him "Osama's brother"

    NEW YORK: In a "bias" attack, a Sikh man lost three of his teeth after being sucker-punched in a moving train in the US by a man, who accused him of being related to slain al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden. Jiwan Singh, who came to America 30 years ago and is an employee of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), was attacked on the US Memorial Day on May 30, The New York Daily News reported. "He was saying, 'You are the brother of Osama,", the 59-year-old Singh was quoted as saying by the news website. "I said, 'I am not...

    Among the things Navy SEALS confiscated from the home of Osama bin Laden last month was a stash of pornography. That led columnist Phil Bronstein of the San Francisco Chronicle to muse that this might explain why the world's most notorious terrorist never launched an attack on that city's transportation system. "…If he's like most adult-content consumers," he wrote, bin Laden would have been wasting too many hours on the computer to do much of anything else. At least the time-wasting aspects of pornography seem to have found a general consensus. Beyond that, however, you're in for a fight. A...

    Full title: "Did a pork-coated bullet kill Bin Laden? Yes, says firm who claim its pig fat gun oil is bought by U.S. military personnel" Was Osama bin Laden shot with a bullet soaked in pork fat, denying him a place in paradise? Yes, if one rather shady website, that peddles gun oil containing liquefied pig fat, is to be believed. The makers of Silver Bullet Gun Oil claim it contains 13 per cent USDA liquefied pig fat thus making the product 'a highly effective counter-Islamic terrorist force multiplier.'

    ISLAMABAD: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday she was even more committed to Pakistan after Osama bin Laden's killing, but said the country needed to do more in its battle with Islamist militants. Clinton is the most senior US official to visit Islamabad since relations between the wary allies went into freefall over the US Navy SEALs raid on May 2 that killed the al-Qaida chief in the city of Abbottabad. Shrouded in blanket security, she met Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, before talks with army chief Ashfaq Kayani and the...

    Following are excerpts from an interview with recently resigned Al-Jazeera TV journalist Ghassan Bin Jiddu, which aired on Al-Dunya TV on May 19, 2011: Ghassan Bin Jiddu: You just mentioned Sheik Osama Bin Laden. Regardless of what we think about Sheik Osama Bin Laden, or about what Al-Qaeda did in the United States… I am among those who never concealed their objection to the attack against New York and Washington in the United States. I was not ashamed to express my opinion from the every first moment. But to kill Sheik Osama Bin Laden and treat him in this manner?!...

    The Post reports: Top Democrats have joined a number of Republicans in challenging President Obama’s policy toward Israel, further exposing rifts that the White House and its allies will seek to mend before next year’s election. If the purpose of the last few days was to assuage Jewish voters, reset President Obama’s Middle East policy and build on Obama’s one unalloyed success (killing Osama bin Laden) the White House failed miserably: White House officials say Obama’s assertion did not reflect a shift in U.S. policy. But the president’s comments touched a nerve among pro-Israel activists, drew a rare Oval Office...

    As news filtered in that heavily armed US Naval commandos shot an unarmed Osama bin Laden point blank between the eyes, I couldn't help thinking of the similar demise of our own Mohammed Yusuf, the late leader of Nigeria's Al-Qaeda affiliate - Boko Haram. Both Islamist leaders though unarmed at the time of capture were summarily executed without the benefit of trial. I shed no tear for their well deserved termination, but the circumstances surrounding their execution must be clarified lest such take-no-prisoners shoot-to-kill policy is abused. Not so long ago we were all witnesses to internet videos showing Nigerian...
  • Who Was a Greater Threat to World Peace - Prophet Mohammed or Osama Bin Laden?

    05/22/2011 1:36:15 PM PDT · by pinochet · 17 replies
    Has anyone mentioned the fact that, Osama Bin Laden's only crime, was that he was faithful to his religious beliefs? Osama was killed for strictly practising his religion, as instructed by his moon god Allah, and his role model, the mad Prophet Mohammed. The Quran instructs Muslims to kill infidels, as part of the requirement to be a good Muslim. The Quran and Hadith also instruct Muslims to beat their wives, keep slaves, and forcibly convert non-Muslims by waging jihad on them. Many Muslims feel that the killing of Osama and his followers, is depriving Muslims of their religious freedom...

    The release of video footage seized from Osama bin Laden's compound in northern Pakistan was part of the continuing effort by the US to convince doubters that the al-Qaeda leader was killed in last Monday's raid. But people in Abbottabad seem sceptical about the authenticity of the films, as Orla Guerin discovered when she took to the streets of the town where bin Laden was said to have been hiding.

    [Note: This is the screenplay for an episode of a new TV series, Michelle Knows Best. Join us for the zany adventures of Michelle, Barack, and the girls as the Obamas come rolling into town. The premise is admittedly far-fetched, but just play along for a moment: Imagine what outrageous farce and knee-slapping comedy would result if one day a neo-Marxist community organizer from the Chicago political machine, of obscure national and religious background, along with his anti-American lawyer wife, woke up one morning and found himself in the White House!! So sit back and settle in for this post-modern...

    Jeez, I go away on vacation and you guys go all Obama on me ("Obama's Rebirth," Talking Politics; "Taking the Long View," editorial, both May 6). If Obama sucked 10 days ago, why does a 40-minute Seal-team mission make him a hero? All he did was say "Go" when presented with information about the possible location of Osama bin Laden. I think any red-blooded American would have said the same thing. Your noses are so far up the president's arse, it's hard to see your Birkenstocks. We should "engage in talks with the Taliban about cooling the war." Really? Obama...

    The London Daily Mirror ^ | May 13, 2011 | Chris Hughes
    Osama bin Laden was plotting a fresh wave of terror attacks which he hoped would kill more people than 9/11. His chilling diaries show he ordered his henchmen to target New York, Los Angeles and US trains. The al-Qaeda boss’s biggest ­ambition was to cause a “body count of thousands” – ideally on this year’s 10th anniversary of the Twin Towers atrocity, which killed 2,997. Obsessed with murdering Americans, he recorded his rants and demands on computer memory sticks from his secret bolthole in Abbottabad, Pakistan. As recently as just a few weeks ago the terror lord barked: “Hit Los...

    The US operation that allegedly killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan has actually led to the death of a clone of the al-Qaeda leader, working under CIA operative Raymond Davis, an American editor says. "The real bin Laden died years ago after receiving treatment in American hospitals for his various illnesses," said Gordon Duff, senior editor of Ohio-based Veterans Today, in an interview with Press TV's US Desk. "His [bin Laden] body was frozen and kept in storage for a date when it would be of advantage to the United States to use it for maximum advantage," Duff wrote in...

Sources familiar with bin Laden's handwritten journal and computer files told ABC News that names of suspected al Qaeda operatives had been found in the files, and that an intense...

    -snip- However, the possibility that the terrorist leader may have been watching them perform is definitely arousing the interest of porn actresses like Amber Peach. "I have no interest in, say, seeing Bin Laden's death photo, but I have a morbid curiosity in knowing what films he was watching," Peach told AOL Weird News. "I'd like to know if he watched older or newer films, and even if I was in any of the films." -snip- Actress Joanna Angel, who also owns Burning Angel, which specializes in alt-porn featuring punkish women with tattoos, is also curious -- even though she...

    - And here I thought President Obama didn’t want to spike the football! If his trip to Ground Zero and his publicized trip to Fort Campbell, speech and all, are not spiking the football, I honestly don’t know what spiking a football looks like. President Obama’s celebrating, no doubt, is irritating Al Qaeda and pro-Bin Laden Muslims to no end. Why does President Obama not show the pictures of a dead Bin Laden (calling it a mere trophy), and then proceed to run victory laps around the country? It’s puzzling unless you think about what kind of ball he is...
